As a Commentary on Our Decadent Elite, the Missing Luxury Sub Is Near Perfect

So, you’re a billionaire looking for “peak life experiences” — exotic adventures available only to people like you, with more money than anyone could ever possibly spend in a lifetime. You discover that someone is offering a deep-sea excursion to view the wreckage of the Titanic, more than two miles deep in the North Atlantic. […]

What Counts as ‘Hate’?

Being identified as a figure of “hate” by the Southern Poverty Law Center has long been part of my personal legend. Those of you old enough to remember when Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs was a popular conservative blogger — really, I’m not making this up — will also remember how, in September 2009, […]

Portland Is Now a ‘No-Go Zone’

“Progressives” ruin everything: When Antifa besieged downtown in 2020, resulting in months of rioting and millions in property damage, President Trump offered to send in the National Guard. City hall refused the help, and vilified Trump instead. A Trump fan wearing an insignia was murdered by a rabble rouser who laid in wait at a […]

‘Stockholm Syndrome’? SVB, BLM and the Toxic Plague of Liberal White Guilt

Bert the Samoan Lawyer sent this story to me with the dry remark, “Basically, this means the taxpayers are picking up the tab for BLM”: Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) and Signature Bank New York (SBNY) donated a combined sum of $71.5 million to the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, according to a new database released […]

Shocking: Muslim ‘Diversity’ Grifter Exposed as Just Another White Woman

So why not? My genocidal hatred […]

Waking Up From Wokeness

One of the wonderful things about the Biden presidency is that, when things go wrong, Democrats can no longer blame Trump — and a whole lot of stuff is going wrong now. We are at the stage of events famously referenced by H.L. Mencken: “Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they […]

When the ‘Progressive Bubble’ Bursts

Sarah Beth Burwick is an excellent example of how disillusionment occurs on the Left. Once you start questioning the narrative on some point — any point — you begin to distrust the narrative generally. In Burwick’s case, the breaking point was the “believe the science” COVID-19 nonsense, the narrative promoting eternal lockdowns, vaccine mandates, etc. […]

All ‘Male Feminists’ Are Creeps, and This Guy Is Exhibit A for the Prosecution

You may have forgotten who Noah Berlatsky is, or perhaps you never heard of him, but he first came to my attention in 2015, when radical feminist Meghan Murphy called him out for posing as a “male feminist” while Berlatsky was writing articles for Playboy. “Noah Berlatsky perseveres in his quest to become America‚Äôs Next […]
